Apple has been getting much flak for all the reception issues that its iPhone 4 is getting. To that end, they are giving out free bumpers to anyone who purchases an iPhone 4 before 30 September. And if word on the street is true, Apple is alleged to be preparing an updated model of the iPhone 4 which will have a redesigned antenna to stop all those reception problem.
